interesting survey result

Not long ago, people used the internet to find the cheapest deal then go to the particular store for the best deal. Then, the evolution changed: shoppers go to the stores to look and feel the products, then shop online. Perhaps whichever way gets the best deal suits our good friend Don's shopping style (according to him, he even purchased sub- printing quality textbooks from China).

A while back, some shops insisted on trying on fees. If memory serves correctly, one ski gear retailer decided to charge consumers for fitting fee as those special gear require knowledge staff spending at least 30 minutes each, then the consumers go online to buy the same product for cheaper. So the shop requires a fee for assistance on finding the suitable gear, and the amount is refundable if the consumer then decided to buy at the store.

It sounds like a fair policy to protect local jobs, since the industry is no as big nor strong as advanced United States of America's.

Anyhow, a survey shows that 1 infour shoppers would support “try-on” fee. There's the news article.

Unlike the lucky Don lives in beautiful Boston with plenty of beautiful snow and super cheap living cost, things here in Australia is not cheap.
